The Saint-Honoré, revisited

saint honoré_enHello, you all!

Last week, I really wanted to try the Saint Honoré recipe. The Saint Honoré is a dessert that was invented during the 19th century by a famous baker on Saint Honoré street in Paris. Funny coincidence: Saint Honoré is the patron saint of…bakers! Originally, this dessert is made of a circular puff pastry base garnished with eight little cream puffs, decorated with whipped cream and caramel.

But this recipe has gone largely unchanged since the 19th century. I wanted to do something original. I tried a remake of this recipe as an entrée/appetizer, filling the cream puffs with a duck mousse and replacing the puff pastry circle by a cheese tile. And it was good! Hell yeah!

Chirashis by Clemmo

chirashimoodHello y’all, or should I say “kon’nichiwa”!

If like me you are fond of Japanese cuisine, you will certainly enjoy this chirashi recipe. The chirashi is a dish based on cold sushi rice served with a side of raw fish, shrimps, veggies, omlet, sesame… According to your taste. All the traditional ingredients of sushis, makis and rolls are gathered, but the chirashi is was easier and faster to make. Most of the time, it is served in a bowl of vinegary rice, with the other ingredients on top. But I wanted to serve it on a more creative way, in the shape of a dome. Enjoy! In Japanese: “Itadakimasu”!

Scroll down for the recipe!

Bagues Swarovski 1min

Hello hello!

Today I found Swarovski beads in my DIY hat. I was looking for something quick and easy to make with them, and had the idea of these minute-made rings. And since their size is adjustable, they will absolutely fit anyone’s finger.

To make them, you will need Swarovski heart beads, wire, a pair of pliers, and a nail polish. This is so easy to make, just have a look at the tutorial below. ;)
